This paper presents a tool that assists control room operators during power system restoration. The system is based on a formal representation of restoration plans that can be executed by control room operators through the help of a tool. The plan execution tool receives high-level diagnostics from an alarm processor and can then automatically initiate the execution of a restoration plan. The tool then presents restoration steps to the operator for execution and audits all steps performed. The tool has been tested off line and is set to undergo real-time experimental use in a control room at CHESF, one of Brazil's largest generation and transmission utility. .
